The main theme of Echinoxul nebunilor şi alte povestiri by Anatol E Baconsky is the mystery of human existence in relation with the cosmos and the universal law of cyclicity. The wind is not only the symbol of this mystery, but it is also the carrier of a transcendent and elusive message. The complicated narrative scheme created by the author invites us to a deep investigation of the inner textual connections among the stories that make up the book. Starting from Gaston Bachelard’s studies on literary imagery, we propose an analysis of the aeolian symbolic configuration, considering its importance within Baconsky’s literary discourse. Our analysis moves from two different and interrelated points of view: the symbolic and the rhetorical ones, with a particular attention to the tropes. As Michele Prandi suggests, to understand the real value of a creative trope we have to consider its contingent and reversible meaning within a specific context, and the indicative perspective of our interpretation. We also offer some example of this hermeneutic process, proposing a short analysis of three figures from Baconsky’work, synesthesia, metaphor and simile, in order to show how a new linguistic configuration can suggest a redefinition of reality.

Abstract

The main theme of Echinoxul nebunilor şi alte povestiri by Anatol E Baconsky is the mystery of human existence in relation with the cosmos and the universal law of cyclicity. The wind is not only the symbol of this mystery, but it is also the carrier of a transcendent and elusive message. The complicated narrative scheme created by the author invites us to a deep investigation of the inner textual connections among the stories that make up the book. Starting from Gaston Bachelard’s studies on literary imagery, we propose an analysis of the aeolian symbolic configuration, considering its importance within Baconsky’s literary discourse. Our analysis moves from two different and interrelated points of view: the symbolic and the rhetorical ones, with a particular attention to the tropes. As Michele Prandi suggests, to understand the real value of a creative trope we have to consider its contingent and reversible meaning within a specific context, and the indicative perspective of our interpretation. We also offer some example of this hermeneutic process, proposing a short analysis of three figures from Baconsky’work, synesthesia, metaphor and simile, in order to show how a new linguistic configuration can suggest a redefinition of reality.
